Hi all,


I have recently created some new partitions on my WD HDD of 2TB, because I switched partly to MacOS. MacOS cannot write to NTFS, of which the HDD before any new partitions consisted. I thus created two new partitions: one exFAT for file sharing between Windows and MacOS systems, and a HFS+ for my MacOS backups only.

I have allocated too much space to the exFAT partition (called "Mac-Win") and removed some 300+ GB from it, which is now unallocated space. I want this unallocated space to be incorporated in the NTFS partition (called "Windows Backups") though the program is unsuccessful in this process giving me the following errors: see attachment.


Can anyone please help me in solving these errors, as I have no idea what they mean? Thanks!


The system I am using is: Windows 10 Home, version: 1709, OS build: 16299.192, 64-bit


Windows Backups (F:) = NTFS
Mac-Win (H:) = exFAT

Primary(2) = MacOS backup

The first thing I'd do is run a CHKDSK /R on the F: drive and see what that does.

instead of doing all the steps at once, do them 1 at a time and reboot after each step, I know it slower but you will have better luck.  also don't create free space between active partitions.  always created them to the right.  so merge that empty space to the primary 2, then shrink it to the left and then you'll have the unallocated space on the right (end of the drive) and you should be able to work with it.
